The Politicians of Bangladesh


Now-a-days
In Bangladesh
Values and ethics have become extinct
And only found in books
Corruption is everywhere
In government offices
And the politicians' goal is
To become elected in the polls
Not the welfare of the people
Because politics has become their business

As if it's Halloween
And the devils have worn mask
Of the good people
That's why
My fastest words are like bullets
That can penetrate their skulls
And change their mindsets

    not only in Bangladesh, most of the countries situation is the same. sometimes I also wish for a change.
    but Values and ethics have become extinct
    And only found in books

    lets hope for the best. now I remember Abraham Lincoln’s letter to his son’s Head Master, that is..

    'that for every selfish politician, there is a dedicated leader'. (Report) Reply
